CEDE Projects, 2011


The Center for Engineering Design & Entrepreneurship is pleased to showcase the design work of our students.

Gonzaga University’s Center for Engineering Design & Entrepreneurship (CEDE) was established in 1992 to enhance the design experience for our senior engineering students. The Center obtains projects for the academic year that are defined and provided by sponsors in the private and public sectors. Prospective sponsors are sought throughout the year for projects involving all engineering and computer science programs. Some projects are interdisciplinary. Participating sponsors provide a definition, resources, and funding for the projects. They also commit a liaison from the sponsoring company to guide and support the students throughout the academic year. In turn, this affords the sponsors an opportunity to evaluate students for possible employment. Throughout the academic year, all projects are periodically reviewed by faculty and the Center’s Design Advisory Board (DAB). The DAB is comprised of engineering and computer science professionals among all the disciplines in both the private and public sectors. They are instrumental constituents for the Center and a major factor to guide the students. The review process brings an outside perspective to the projects and is a component required to meet design guidelines established by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The Center for Engineering Design is pleased to showcase the design work of our students. Our gratitude is extended to our project sponsors and liaisons. We encourage you to visit the project exhibits, to attend the formal project presentations, and to join us at the social that concludes these events.
